There is a doubt about whether the command line buffer will take the

if not, xargs will help you issue multiple zypper in, at optimal

No, that has a problem: not having the entire list of packages may
break the solver case. It will not consider everything in order to
solve dependencies, and may want to bring other different packages to
solve the needs.

I'm not sure that is a real issue. You would face the same problem
doing it manually. Nothing much there can be done if your package list
exceeds 2Mb - still, even at 40 chars per package, that's 50000+
packages :-)
